T4S cover

Love the T4S mixer and Bose sound, but this latest iteration of T mixer has warts introduced that make life more complicated rather than improving situations.

The T1 had a cover that protected the operating controls while in transit and while on stage if desired to protect from fiddlers and tweakers.

The T4S cover is ok for transit but can no longer be used on stage to protect settings as it now goes down the back and covers ports - which can’t be done with cables plugged in.

A minus point for me....

Hi ScubaBadger,

That's an interesting observation. The T4S/T8S cover protects the ports on the rear and that is an improvement over the T1® design (ports exposed but we had the soft cover).  I've read your post about the cover. I now use a neoprene sleeve to protect my T8S in transit.  

I can't remember a time when I've had to cover the T1® on stage.  I  turn off the T1® (now T4S) when I leave the stage unless I'm running background music during a break. 

If there are fiddlers and tweakers on the stage when I'm not there, I've got bigger problems than finding the settings have changed when I return.

Yes i run background music when I'm not performing and leave the cover over it.

If I have to leave the room for a loo break and I'm working in a large room with families and kids in it - yes people can be tempted.

If I'm working in close proximity to drinkers, the cover is an extra insurance against spills in my absence.

Yes I'm a pain in the ... but I love and look after my kit and when sensible options are removed I question the logic...

Hi ScubaBadger,

I appreciate all the input. We may be musicians, illusionists, entertainers, roadies, promoters, empresarios, and oh, so much more. It's interesting to discuss these ideas with you.

You've given me an idea.  Do you have dollar stores near you? I'm tempted to the local place and pick up yet another neoprene tablet sleeve. I'd get a large one, cut a hole in the side to make a cover that I could slip over the T4S.  For my audiences, this would be sufficient to deter curious fingers, and it would offer protection from beverages.

My T4S goes into one of those small foam insulated lunch carriers along with cords. That then goes into a Gator bag along with my S1 pro, the mic and a short mic stand. Guitar in one hand, Gator bag in the other, and off I go. One easy trip.
